Given that unique competitive environment, there is the tendency for individual distributors to offer their opportunity as 'the best'. That's natural, but how they do that is critical. Sadly, most of them only think to accomplish creating the perception of 'best' based on their old paradigm values, being the best by putting down the competition. 'My car's better than your car.' That may be fine when it's Ford versus GM or when multi-million-dollar fights for market share are being waged over the TV in the beer battles or cola wars. But when Network Marketing distributors put down other companies, they're also putting down the industry as a whole.
What happens then, and remember, we are the 'word-of-mouth' business, is that there's this growing communication out there in the world about how bad this company is, and that company is, and this other company is. Here's an interesting statistic, for every positive piece of word-of-mouth consumers pass around, there are 11 negative comments being shuttled about. Just think about that for a moment: for every positive thing that's said about my company or product, there are 11 negative things being said. Geometric progression works! For us and against us, too.
Soon, those 11 negatives become 22, then 44, and all the way up into the hundreds of thousands, as one person shares how bad Network Marketing is with another, and they tell five, and they tell five, etcetera. This leads prospects such as your self to think, "Why would I want to be involved in an industry where every company but one markets mediocre products, has an unfair compensation plan and treats their people poorly?!"
What we as distributors fail to understand is this, we all, every single Networking distributor, have the responsibility to 'sell' our industry itself, as well as our individual products and opportunity. Network Marketing is the ultimate in freedom, the freest of all free enterprise. That's the front side. The back, the other side of the coin, is responsibility. Network Marketing is truly the responsibility business. We get paid for taking responsibility. The more of it we take on, the more we get paid. That's what the word 'sponsor' means, being responsible for the people you bring into the business.
When you are responsible for an organization of thousands of people, you earn a lot of money. Which is great. That's as it should be. Right now, as you read this, you may be concerned with your survival in this business, with your sole responsibility being the creation of your own success, true? If your answer is "Yes", what would be different if you were concerned about the success of the entire industry? If that were your responsibility? What would you spend your time focused on?
Another and probably the largest reason why people say that QNET is a scam is because they have not earned the money they wished to earn from the business, in the time they wished to earn it. In this industry, your personal efforts are of the highest importance. If you do not give 100% to the business, you will earn less than what you hoped for. QNET provides, like many other companies in this industry, a business for people who are serious about gaining financial freedom. Although you don't need qualifications to do this business, it does not mean that you can just join and money starts flowing into your pocket. That is the definition of a pyramid scheme. Money does not grow on trees after all! You are required to work, but this time you are working smart not working hard.
QNET scam reports have also been used as a marketing strategy that is used by a number of rival firms and representatatives of other network marketing companies to paint the picture that their compay is best, as i mentioned earlier. These tactics are very effective and ignoring them can be difficult. These reports are spread with the idea that after reading such reports, those who would have otherwise wanted to invest in QNET, will rethink their decision and might decide to not invest in QNET at all. So it is essential to know the intentions of those writing these reports before believing them since they are generally nothing more that marketing gimmick to increase the demand and the need of the rival companies and their schemes
QNET scam reports are also written by those who clearly do not know how network marketing operates as a whole. To them the concept that you do not have to work hard at something to earn an income is ridiculous. Such people are stuck in the JOB mentality and will come up with all sorts of reasons to justify their beliefs. To them you can not run a successful business if you do not do everything yourself. I had a prospect tell me once that investing in QNET was risky. I informed them that it is only risky to those who know nothing about it! Once you learn how the business operates, you will realise how low risk QNET really is. You only have to be open minded to the opportunity QNET and the network marketing industry presents..
In my view though it is the irresponsible representatives, those who paint the picture that all you have to do is join QNET, sit back, relax and all the work will be done for you to start earning money. These representatives do the most damage to this wonderful company. All prospects who meet such representatives are hereby forewarned. Although their intentions may be good, these representatives are inevitably in the business for themselves and will not stick by you once the signup is completed. It is because of these bad representatives that QNET is viewed as a scam by the prospects that are abandoned by these irresponsible parties. Your goal then as a prospect is to look for the Representative who has your best interest at heart. One you trust will impart to you all their knowlegde so as to assist you succeed in your business. The good news is that such representatives do exist. They understand that this business is about TEAMWORK.
Network Marketing is all about networking and interacting with people, understanding their problems and giving them solutions, especially to their financial problems if they have any. We provide them with something that neither the government nor their JOBs can give them. And that is Time and Financial Freedom. It has been said that a networker is a "Freedom Fighter”. Most people in the world aren’t free to do as they please. They are trapped in their JOBS and most can’t get out of that particular form of "slavery". QNET offers people who are serious about their dreams the opportunity to achieve them.
